When Nietzsche Wept
- By: Irvin D. Yalom
- Narrated by: Paul Michael Garcia
- Length: 15 hrs and 25 mins
Josef Breuer, one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis, is at the height of his career. Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe's greatest philosopher, is on the brink of suicidal despair, unable to find a cure for the headaches and other ailments that plague him. When he agrees to treat Nietzsche with his experimental "talking cure", Breuer never expects that he, too, will find solace in their sessions. Only through facing his own inner demons can the gifted healer begin to help his patient.

Irwin Yalom at his best
Loved it. Left me wanting to know more about Nietzsche and Breuer. Excellent narration.
